I thought it would be fun to start a new segment called Fitness Friday!
As you might have noticed, I really enjoy working out. I also like finding new ways to push myself as well as new workouts. I like to sweat and I sweat a lot. The amount of perspiration that comes off my body is usually a sign of how good of a workout I had. Unless of coarse I’m in Mexico and no matter how easy my workout might have been, I still sweat buckets.
I’ve learned a lot of new at home workouts from reading other peoples blogs or searching on Pinterest. So I thought sharing a favorite workout from the week and hopefully one of yours might introduce others to some new exercises.
So let’s get started!
Let me begin with reviewing my workouts for the entire week.
Sunday – Rest
Monday – Nike Training Workout on iphone, ran on treadmill 2.5 miles, 60 minute spin class
Tuesday – SS (Stroller Strides), Interval workout on treadmill 7 x 400 meters
Wednesday – Ran on treadmill 2.5 miles, 45 minutes of spin class
Thursday – 5 mile run
Friday – SS, Nike Training ab workout 15 minutes
Saturday – (hasn’t happened yet) 12 mile run
Now for my favorite workout of the week… I’d have to say I’m really enjoying the Nike Training Workouts and my favorite this week was the Heartthrob Cardio one I did. It was only 30 minutes but I was sweating and working hard throughout the entire workout. Here’s a rundown of what this particular workout consisted of.
FYI – some of the video links are not from the Nike app so I apologize for the sporadic videos but wanted to give you the chance to try out the workout if you don’t have the app 🙂
1 min light jog
1 min recover
30 sec mountain climbers (faster than in the video)
1 min walk out push up swivel (video does not include swivel, twist your knee under your body towards your opposite elbow after your push up)
2 min hamstring stretch
2 min pretzel stretch
1 min lower back stretch
The only thing I wish these workout included more of is stretching. This is one area that I’m usually lacking in and if it were included I would do more of it. I know, I need to stretch more!
